Ready for the Bell math resources provide a comprehensive set of print, multimedia resources, and assessments with real world learning explorations.
A Concept Capsule is a combination of a PowerPoint Slide deck with teacher notes for you or your parents to present PLUS a video with audio explaining the concept. These mini-lessons break a concept down into more detail and provide the students with a variety of learning strategies to use as they work to understand and be able to apply the concept in real life. Concept Capsules can be used in three ways:
• To teach a concept that comes from a previous grade curriculum and is needed for the Lesson in the present grade curriculum
• To reinforce a concept that was taught in the present grade curriculum but where more practice or a different approach may be useful
•To extend a concept beyond the present grade curriculum
Students view the Concept Capsule as a start stop video.
Teachers receive PPT and Google Slide versions of the Concept Capsule complete with speaking notes.
This Concept Capsule includes:
- Concept Capsule Video: 4:05
- Concept Capsule Powerpoint: 12 slides
-Concept Capsule Notes: 14 Pages

Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.1
